Open DTS case for misfiring - no fix available
By latette on


2012 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 BlueTEC 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


Love the looks, mileage and ride of the ML blueTec, but having to drive for a mile or so, every morning since I drove it off the lot, misfiring is getting old! Upon returning it to the dealer I was told that there were numerous open complaints on the issue, but a fix was not yet available. They hope to have a fix out soon.....$57k and I need to drive a misfiring Mercedes through my neighborhood every morning.....I guess that will teach me for buying the first year of a new body style. So now I wait.......or do I start the lemon law process...time will tell...

Best Features

Ride is fantastic, interior quality is top notch, real world mixed 50/50 is 24 mpg. The torque is amazing.

Worst Features

How do you sell a car that you know misfires? Ruined an otherwise fantastic vehicle...Stay away from this one until they get this issue resolved...it is quite embarrassing every morning....
